  BP1934 mentions the above marriage and reports that Frederick dsp. However, 'HamiltonHistory' mentions that Frederick also married the following Bridget and had issue as shown. 'HamiltonHistory' reports that "Suites (sic) were instituted to declare te marriage with Elizabeth Hadley invalid on the ground of the infancy of the parties at the time of the alleged marriage, but the issue was never determined." As the viscountcy passed to Frederick's brother rather than his son, it is clear that his children by Bridget were deemed illegitimate.
